A few weeks ago, I posted about the reasons for the delay of Dark Hollow. Here’s an update on where things stand for the rest of the year.
After sorting out the previously mentioned problems, Dark Hollow just finished at the printer. So the physical books exist. You should see it pop up on Amazon, B&N, and elsewhere next week (with the Kindle and Nook versions to follow, as always).
Entombed, Ghost Walk, and An Occurrence In Crazy Bear Valley are all being copy-edited right now. Glenn Chadbourne makes his Deadite debut with the cover to the latter. Alex McVey is currently doing the cover for Ghost Walk (and from his description, it’s going to be a stunning depiction of Nodens). None of these were in the format Dark Hollow was, so production shouldn’t be delayed on them. You’ll definitely see all three before the end of summer.
Fall gives us Earthworm Gods and Earthworm Gods: Selected Scenes From the End of the World, as well as the paperback and digital editions of Clickers vs. Zombies. My pre-readers are going over the manuscripts for the Worms books right now, so we are way ahead of schedule. And next month, I’ll begin the long process of editing the Author’s Preferred Editions of The Rising, City of the Dead, and The Rising: Selected Scenes From the End of the World. You should see those this winter.
While I’ll certainly finish writing Suburban Gothic this year, because of this newly revised schedule, I’m guessing you won’t see it until early 2013.
I’m also editing an anthology for Deadite, but it’s way too early to talk about that.
Anyway, that’s where things currently stand.
